Sagebrush tattoo owner

Garth Wessel, owner of new downtown tattoo studio Sagebrush Tattoo, adds finishing touches to a newly finished painting in his studio Thursday afternoon. The artist is looking to add to Laramie’s art scene with his tattoo studio serving as both an art space in addition to a place for custom tattoos.

Nestled next to Thai Spice on Third Street in downtown is a new tattoo studio, Sagebrush Tattoo, which is aiming to combine tattooing and the broader Laramie art scene.

A tattoo artist with 13 years of experience, studio owner Garth Wessel said he loves almost everything about being a tattoo artist. He knew he wanted to start a career in tattooing when he was 14 years old and started working to build a portfolio until he was 18 and could start an apprenticeship.
